Clean Rooms in Plastic Injection Molding: Ensuring Precision and Quality at AdvanTech Plastics

AdvanTech Plastics has committed itself to delivering top-notch products that will require state-of-the-art clean rooms, ensuring a controlled environment that meets the highest industry standards. In this guide, we’ll explore the significance of clean rooms in plastic injection molding and the various ISO levels that play a crucial role in maintaining the quality of our products.

The Importance of Clean Rooms in Plastic Injection Molding

Clean rooms are integral to our manufacturing process as they provide a controlled environment with low levels of pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapors. In plastic injection molding, where precision is paramount, maintaining a clean environment is essential to producing high-quality and defect-free components.

Contaminants in the air can adversely affect the molding process, leading to defects in the finished products. Dust particles, for example, can result in surface imperfections and compromise the structural integrity of the molded parts. To ensure that our products meet the stringent quality requirements of our clients, we have implemented clean room facilities that adhere to specific ISO standards.

ISO Levels in Clean Rooms

Clean rooms are classified based on the quantity and size of airborne particles permitted per cubic meter of air. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has established a set of standards to categorize clean rooms, ranging from ISO 1 to ISO 9, with ISO 1 being the cleanest and ISO 9 the least clean.

ISO 7 and ISO 8 Clean Rooms

AdvanTech Plastics operates clean rooms primarily falling within the ISO 7 and ISO 8 classifications. ISO 7 clean rooms permit no more than 352,000 particles of 0.5 micrometers or larger per cubic meter of air, while ISO 8 clean rooms allow up to 3,520,000 particles. These controlled environments are crucial for preventing contamination during the injection molding process.  However, we have plans to build out a fully-functional ISO 1 Clean Room in the near future.

Stringent Quality Control with ISO Standards

Our commitment to quality is reflected in our adherence to ISO standards. By operating within the specified ISO levels, we ensure that the air in our clean rooms is consistently filtered and monitored, creating an environment that minimizes the risk of defects in the final products. This stringent control is particularly important in industries where precision and cleanliness are non-negotiable.
